A recent security concern, termed “Heartbleed” has been spreading
across the Web. Fortunately, Fitness AV is safe from this serious
issue. Continue reading to learn more.
Although Heartbleed stems from a small coding error, its impact could
be quite large. Thus far, Yahoo has experienced one of the largest and
most public encounters, with hundreds of usernames and passwords being
compromised. The company has since stated that they have fixed the main
vulnerability affecting its sites.
Despite the severity of the issue, rest assured that Fitness AV is completely safe from Heartbleed’s impact. This is because we do not use OpenSSL, an open-source encryption software.
Unlike other ecommerce web sites, Fitness AV was never vulnerable to
this security issue, meaning no patching was required. Heartbleed has
been present since March 2012, which indicates that any communications
that occurred via OpenSSL could have been subject to inappropriate or
nefarious eavesdropping. At no point in this time was Fitness AV exposed to this problem.
